*Healthy Foods for Lansing-area residents*

*LANSING, MI – April 7, 2017 – *Allen Neighborhood Center (ANC) offers two
unique Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs to promote access to
healthy foods from local farms: the Hunter Park GardenHouse CSA and Veggie

ANC’s two CSA programs are a subscription service to local farm produce,
which include sustainably grown vegetables, fruit, and optional add-on
shares of locally-produced meats, bread, eggs, cheese, coffee, dry beans,
and sweet treats. Each week of the CSA season, members receive a box of
delicious, seasonal, local food. The Hunter Park GardenHouse CSA produce is
all grown in Hunter Park in Lansing’s Eastside. The Veggie Box produce is
grown from a variety of small farms within 50 miles of Lansing.

*CSA Seasons*

The Hunter Park GardenHouse Summer CSA season runs for 16 weeks, June 7-
September 20. The Summer Veggie Box season runs for 20 weeks, June 15-
October 26.

*Payment Options*

Both CSA programs have flexible payment options including weekly with SNAP
payments, installments, and lump sum. The Hunter Park GardenHouse CSA also
includes a work-share option to further reduce the cost for folks who are
income eligible.

*Delivery & Pick-Up Options*

Veggie Box offers free delivery to workplaces where 5 or more Veggie Boxes
are ordered and pick-up on Thursdays from 12-6pm at the Allen Market Place.
The Hunter Park GardenHouse CSA offers pick-up on Wednesdays from 3:30-6pm
inside the Allen Market Place during the Allen Farmers Market.

“Individuals and families participating in CSA feel great not only from
consuming healthy and nutritious foods throughout the season, they also
take pride by putting their money where their mouth is, knowing that their
dollars directly support small-scale farm businesses, sustainable growing
practices, resilient communities, and innovative food systems.”- John
McCarthy of Allen Neighborhood Center
